Updated modelling tool for PK/PD data analysis

1st April 2013

ICON plc, the provider of outsourced development services to the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device industries, has announced the release of a new version of NONMEM, ICON’s non-linear, mixed effects modelling tool for Population Pharmacokinetic/Pharmacodynamic (PK/PD) data analysis.

One year following the release of NONMEM 7, which included a new suite of statistical methods to support more complex models for analysing Population PK/PD data and a more comprehensive range of classical estimation methods, ICON has released NONMEM 7.2, which includes the following enhancements:

* Parallel computing of a single problem over multiple cores or computers, significantly reducing completion time.
* Dynamic memory allocation according to problem size, eliminating the need to recompile the NONMEM program for unusually large problems. User may override program generated suggested values using a statement in the control stream.
* Other improvements include control stream files that may be written in mixed case, added flexibility in the input and output of variance matrix parameters, XML markup version of the NONMEM report file, as well as features to facilitate stochastic differential equations (SDE).
